Fake News 18th May 1904

Fake News is a new project, by Tim Knight, which uses Local and Family History’s newspaper archive to publish a fictional front page every month. Curated from cuttings of The Yorkshire Post and The Yorkshire Evening Post—Leeds’ oldest continuous newspaper—Fake News will explore the goings-on, mishaps and miscellany of Yorkshire through the ages.

Today’s edition, hot off the press: 18th May 1904. J H Elgie fills us in on the night sky, a young gentleman of 30 wishes to correspond with a quiet and inoffensive young woman, and be sure to secure a ticket for famous German juggler, Paul Cinqueville, down at The Empire Theatre—box office opens at 10am.
